Artist’s Way Circle was founded in May 20, 2000 as a living Memorial to my best friend & fellow UWM Student Steve Nemacheck who committed suicide March 5, 2000. Steve was a Blackfoot Artist Student at University of Wisconsin of Milwaukee with me who had PTSD after a major car accident. Steve’s wife left him and he ended up hospitalized, but as soon as he was released Steve committed suicide. I never got to say goodbye! I created this Artist’s Way Circle for a safe place for artists to come in the sacred circle so they will never be alone. I am a Certified Peer Support and Wellness Specialist trained in answering mental health & suicide calls with Safe Harbor crisis center with Community Alliance.
